The Varsity Terriers were at home this past week to take on the Vikings of Northside. It was the final home game of the regular season which meant that it was Senior Night, The Fallen Soldier Tribute game, and this year due to COVID-19 Homecoming was combined with Senior night. The day started out beautiful with the Senior Football players, Senior Cheer Leaders and Senior Band members being honored before the start of the game. The football players made their way back to the locker room to get changed into their tribute game uniforms. The game got started and ran through the 1st qtr. That is when lightning strikes started in the area and the game eventually got postponed until Monday 3-29. On Monday the weather was better and the game started back with the beginning of the 2nd qtr with each team getting a score but missing the extra point heading into the locker room at halftime tied at 6. At the start of the 3rd qtr the Terriers scored first, but that would be it for them for the rest of the game. The Vikings scored 3 more times in the 4th qtr ending the game with a final score of 28-13.
The Varsity Terriers will travel to Staunton River on Friday April 2nd for their last game of the regular season. Game time will be 7:00pm. As of this writing, visiting fans will not be allowed in the game, but there is a meeting on Thursday 4/1 to discuss this so that may change. If you have any questions regarding visiting attendance, please direct them to Jason Taylor at WBHS and please check back here or on our social media platforms for any announcements.
The JV Terriers took on the JV Glenvar Highlanders on Thursday March 25th. The scoring went back and forth for most of the game. At the end of the 3rd qtr the JV Terriers were in the lead 21-13. With 3:15 left in the game, Glenvar scored a touchdown and would go for the 2-pt conversion to tie the game. The 2-pt conversion was good and the game ended regulation time tied at 21 and we would go into overtime. In overtime the Terriers scored thus giving Glenvar their chance to tie the game and keep OT going. The JV Terrier defense came up big stopping the Highlanders winning the game in overtime 28-21. They will be back in action on Thursday 4/1 at home against the JV Magna Vista squad. Game time will be 6:00pm.
The Middle School Terriers were also in action on Thursday March 25th at home against Northside Middle School. This game would end up being the last regular season game for the Middle School Terriers so they were looking to keep their undefeated season in tact with a win. They did not disappoint when it came to their play for this game. They controlled the game from the start hanging 46 points on the Middle School Vikings allowing only one score and 2-point conversion. The Terrier Football program would like to congratulate the Middle School program on their undefeated season and we look forward to seeing them progress as a team in the years to come.
